The NBC weatherman gives us a chatty history of how he and his wife became pregnant, and how they raised a new daughter alongside his adopted daughter from his previous marriage. The author is a media veteran with a positive outlook and pleasant voice to match, and he is most warm and intimate when sharing memories of his own childhood. Don't hold your breath for great insights or profound advice--Roker is a TV personality, and he covers too much parenting ground to do much more than entertain the listener. But the vignettes flow seamlessly and move the narrative along so well that, before you know it, it's over and you're left with a gut full of warm fuzzies.
